    • Smash them and leave the skin on, and roast them on a baking tray for 35 minutes, (or until the garlic is soft and fragrant).

3

    • While this is happening we will prepare the other vegetables, trim off the bottom stems on a quarter pound of fresh asparagus.

5

    • Cut the asparagus diagonally into 4 inch pieces.
    • Next we will core, seed and slice 2 Red bell Peppers.
    • Slice a quarter pound of mushrooms and quarter half of a tomato.
    • Chop a half teaspoon of rosemary and a half teaspoon of fresh oregano.

7

  • when the roasted garlic is ready, Peel and roughly chop it.
  • Now we can place all the vegetables in a roasting pan.
  • In order to ensure that the all flavours of the veggies mix thoroughly together while roasting,  mix the rosemary and oregano together in a bowl with two table spoons of Olive Oil.

9

    • Now pour and Share the Herb Oil over the veggies and ensure that all veggies are nicely coated with the herb mixture, Make sure to Toss all the veggies and make sure there is an even distribution of oil throughout the dish
    • Now all that is left to do.. is to roast the vegetables in the preheated oven for 15 minutes!

10

    • (You can also stir them halfway to make sure that all the veggies roast evenly).
    • While the Veggies are roasting away in the oven, Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil.. add in 8 ounces of dry fettechini pasta, and allow the pasta to boil for between 8 to 10 minutes until the pasta is well cooked.
    • Once the pasta is cooked and drained, add the fettachini to a serving bowl.
    • Next add as many roasted vegetables on top of the pasta as you see fit.
    • You can then add a quarted cup of grated Parmesan cheese, and two tablespoons of tapenard.
      (tapenard is a condiment from Provence, which is a blend of finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil).

  • Finally, Toss the Pasta Gently to mix the cheese and tapenard nicely with the veggies.
